Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peter LO Don't stay on 24th floor
I have stayed here before, but not on a Saturday night. The hotel is built over 3 floors at the top of 'The Cube'.
The 23rd and 24th floors have a total of around 50 rooms and the top 25th floor is bars and restaurant, which becomes a live music venue on Saturday night. And once the intensive bass thud coming through the floor died at 3am, we then had the sound of furniture being scraped on the floor, in time for the next day's service.
We were under this and it is not an experience I would like to repeat. If i were to stay here again it would only be on 23rd floor - but since the corridor noise in the room was also loud, sounds of doors shutting and people chatting, I suspect that might not be too great on a Saturday night either.
the possibility of noise wasnt mentioned at check in. We arrived early and i am sure we could have been put a floor down.
Beyond this the hotel is quite cool with what would be great views if we weren't in the centre of Birmingham.
On both occasions i've stayed here, i've been surprised by the lack of local knowledge from reception staff and the fact that you really have to prompt them if you want them to google any information for you.
I think this is a hotel that needs some attention.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tafkad Great Location to see Birmingham
Hotel Indigo is on the top floors of the Cube ideally located for visits to theatres, symphony hall, ICC and NIA with lots of good restaurants close by. The rooms were bright, fresh and clean. The only downside for me was the price of the Full English breakfast which is extremely high with nothing to differentiate it from a breakfast at 1/3 of the price.
That is minor to a great stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noddynikk Hotel Indigo Birmingham - January 2015 - A good nights sleep
A nice hotel in a great location at the Mailbox. Room, bed, pillows and darkness of the room where spot on - really good nights sleep.
Reception is a little small and doesn't feel part of the hotel, its stuck in the corner. It took a bit of working out which floor it is on; 7 by the way. Signage could be better from the lower floors.
Local area is great for a wide variation of food and drink and in the summer would be great to sit outside besides the canal and watch the world go by.
I didn't try the Marco Pierre White restaurant linked to the hotel, but can recommend as I have eaten there before. The champagne bar is also great, but you need a partner or you look like you are on the pull :-)
Overall, a nice hotel, good nights sleep in a nice part of Birmingham.
